In 2023 the STFS will separate and the KSS Foundation School will be managed by a new team within the South East region. This will allow the medical graduates from the Kent & Medway Medical School, those from Brighton & Sussex Medical School, and other trainees who choose to train in KSS to remain within KSS for the duration of their foundation training. 


For 2022, the current South Thames programmes are being reconfigured over the coming months to ensure that F1 trainees starting in either KSS or South London in August 2022 can apply to two-year programmes in either location when choosing their preferred rotations. 


In 2023 a pan London School will be established with North London and South London. With KSS as its own school. 


Doctors wishing to apply to train in South London will be able to preference programmes: 


  •     South London West 
  •   South London East  


Doctors wishing to apply to train in KSS will be able to preference programmes: 


  •     KSS West 
  •    KSS Central  
  •    KSS East 


North London 


For 2022 the North Central & East London and the North West London Foundation Schools will be merging to form a single unit of application. These schools will continue to have programmes running over 2 years in either NCEL or NWL. 


In 2023 a pan London School will be established.
